Prom dress code divides students, parents

I’m hearing that Prom this year at Freedom High School in Loudoun County is “polarizing” the community. I’m told it all started after the school posted a dance “‘dress code.” Here’s a copy of what the kids got- basically no high slits, cut out bodices, plunging necklines and ultra low open backs.

Shocker.. students are upset. So much so they aren’t going- to THAT prom. In fact, I’ve learned via an anti-dress rule revolution online the students organized an “alternate’ party. One on a boat. One that got more than 60 students out to a local McDonalds within half an hour to sign up for the unofficial “second prom.”

Also, included in the rules that went out: this graphic. Can’t help but find it amusing. I’m not gonna share the bump ‘n’ grind pictures attached to it showing “appropriate” and “inappropriate” dancing.  Just use your imagination.
